Brief, approachable, and modular, best-selling MUSIC LISTENING TODAY, 6th Edition delivers a complete course solution that develops students' listening skills, providing a chronological framework that helps them understand and appreciate different styles, forms, and genres of music. The text takes students on a journey through the development of music, beginning with the elements of music and moving through the various style periods from the early Western period until the present day -- using illustrative music selections and teaching students how to listen as they go. Jazz and film music receive special attention. Carefully chosen for their teachability, the musical selections cover a range of styles and include music students will easily recognize. With this edition, all musical selections are available online in streaming form in MindTap and as downloads (replacing the former CDs).
